  3. Hi Sezell, We have seen this occur. Please refer to this article. https://support.smartdeploy.com/support/solutions/articles/48001064039-error-sysprep-was-not-able-to-validate-your-windows-installation- If you still have issues, send a deployment log set to support@smartdeploy.com and you can refer to this thread. https://support.smartdeploy.com/support/solutions/articles/48000984846-collect-logs Thanks, Devon SmartDeploy Support
  4. I just tried deploying a 21H1 image, and I get this error message on reboot: Sysprep was not able to validate your Windows installation. Along with info about where to find the log file. Is this version supported yet? I'll try getting to logs if they're needed.

  6. The error in the Media.log I see is; "Exception Message:Key not valid for use in specified state." This is due to a certificate issue on the SmartDeploy host. Please follow these steps to fix your issue and make sure that you are removing the certificates from Local Computer, not Current User. 1. Uninstall the SmartDeploy console for your new computer. 2. Go to settings and search for "Manage Computer Certificates" 3. Delete the SmartDeploy Console certificate from Local Computer - Personal - Certificates 4. Delete the SmartDeploy Console certificate from Local Computer -

  10. Hi Steve, I'll reach out to you via email about the script. Just to answer your question for the room: only one console hostname or IP can be specified for the client - it is not possible to specify both. Glenn SmartDeploy Support
  11. Glenn, Can i have that script? I want to change from computer name to IP. Is there a way to have both the ip and console computer name in the client?
  12. yes i also create some application packages and yes i also played around and yes i waste very much time with this Software. i working with Unattended Setups and so on since NT 4.0 (so a few years already) but never had a software (for this price) what i felt more than a beta-tester. anyway, thanks for you input. lets have if somebody else has a working package what i can use, if not - i move it over to GPO what is working 100%
  13. @PaddyBI created the above application pack with a powershell script to enable System Restore. And this pack gets pushed out to all machines that are imaged with our deployment media. If you go thru the Wizard of creating an application pack. It will guide you thru selecting your PS1 file, then it will automatically fill in the command line. I would recommend playing around with creating application packs. I have also created a lot of custom ones for 1 off apps that support silent installs. I would recommend having either a spare machine or even a VM with SD Client on it to push packages out t
  14. i know Aaron, just was wondering if somebody else made (like i wrote) made a application package maybe with some better solution than my script... to tell the truth, if I not have to generate a SmartDeploy Package i not do it - too much trail and error till it works (Slow, missing Status, sometimes no LogFiles and so on)
  15. You can create an Application Pack to run a PowerShell script. Thus you would create a Application Pack with your script and give it arguments to run. (well, I cannot upload a screenshot of my application pack or I would) The command output would look like this: powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File "[ApplicationsFolder]\PowerShell - EnableSystemRestore\Files\(YourPowerShellScripthere)" Without parenthesis.
  16. Hi Guys who did already a Package for the new Windows 10 Way for LangaugePack and LXP as SmartDeploy Package? i run after the the Depoy the Package with the following Script #region Preparations $currentExecutingPath = $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition.Replace($MyInvocation.MyCommand.Name, "") #endregion #============================================================= #region Variables $architecture = "x64" $SystemLocale = "en-US" #endregion #============================================================= #r
  17. thanks, yes this works... but i need to search for me another way (maybe GPO, but we have 7-10 domains) ... because the settings in HKCU so, if somebody else use the computer the settings gone
  18. @C ThelenOne catch to the process is if there is a major Windows release (ie 21H1 or 21H2). You want to avoid those updates in your golden image. I am currently performing the same steps as you since my boss wants the images to have the latest updates to speed up the deployment of machines faster. But I am overwriting the image file when capturing so I do not need to redo the USB deployment media since we are using the "Boot media" and not WDS or Offline USB.
  19. @Dozer Here is the code in the answer file that specifies region info: <regional_settings skip="0"> <time_zone>(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US and Canada)</time_zone> <input_locale>English (United States)</input_locale> </regional_settings> This came from lines 37 to 40 in the answer file. This can be done in the wizard as well (3rd from the last option). Obviously change the info as needed.
  20. You can certainly email screenshots to Support (or share them here if you like) but I would recommend adding the registry changes as direct tasks in an Application Pack. Here's a sample one I just made that would add or change a reg value named "Enabled" and set it to 1 in the key you see here. This method works pretty well.
  21. Hi Dayne, Sorry you're still encountering capture issues. Try the following as I've seen it help capture issues such as the mounting and access issues you are receiving. Start the virtual reference machine and run disk cleanup, including system files. Once completed, restart the virtual reference machine gracefully via the start menu. Once back at the desktop, open an administrative command prompt and type: shutdown.exe /s /t 0 Be sure any anti-virus is disabled and recapture and let us know your results. If you still have issu
  22. Hi all i try to deploy a self-made registry file via SmartDeploy App Package i recive an error in the console - how can I get more details what was the error? - how can I delete the error? the Problem is, so far i can see no registry settings are changed how you guys doing such stuff? some of the registry setting s are in the Hive "Current User" with what user SmartDeploy Install the Registry File?
  23. So I created my Windows 10 20H2 golden image. But when I attempt to capture it from the VHDX in Smart Deploy, it sits there at looking for Operating Systems and then eventually I get an Access Denied error. I have been going around in circles trying to figure out what is the issue, I am about to attempt a re-install of Smart Deploy in hopes its a weird issue there, but has anyone else seen this? Update- After re-installing Smart Deploy, I am getting an Unable to Mount image error now when I try to capture it. Any idea's? I have never had an issue with this before on this system.
  24. Hello, The process you've laid out is certainly one way to do it - and if you want to reimage your endpoints each month, there's no reason why it wouldn't work for that purpose. You'll just want to make sure that you do not install any feature updates/in-place upgrades onto your reference VM. The Windows 10 Release Information page will give you the current servicing dates for each release of Windows 10 - the general rule (for Enterprise and Education SKUs) has been that the release in the first half of the year (such as 2004 and 21H1) will be serviced for 18 months, and the release in the
  25. Hi Dozer, Thanks for reaching out. Language selection is one of the standard options in Deploy Wizard which can be configured with a SmartDeploy Answer File - your language selection should be passed through to Windows without any part of the OOBE wizard appearing. So this is unexpected behavior. We'll want to take a look at a logset from this deployment and see what went on here - please expect an email from us shortly. Glenn SmartDeploy Support
  26. hi everyone, we are new users of Smart Deploy currently testing our 1st image to be deployed to 150 teaching lab machines. So far so good, I've created a basic Win10 Ent image (with nothing else on it, I wanted it to be light for speed of transfer for testing, once we are happy, will add all our application and it should be around 80-90gb). The problem I have is it seems like once SmartDeploy is done pushing the image to a client pc, and runs sysprep, on the 1st boot, the 1st user who gets to log on the machine is prompted to choose what language Windows will be (french, english, spanish
  27. Currently, our plan is to have a monthly ritual of: Update the golden image from within its VM Capture the new golden image from the console Update all answer files to use the new image Re-create all the installation media with the new image Also, to keep workstations in storage up to date, we will have to boot them and re-image them as part of this ritual. Is there another established way of accomplishing this?
